And it Begins
Finally on a full week of vacation.Of course it technically started on Friday when I left work, but I'm always off the weekends so it didn't feel like it.
What to do, what to do. I have a very large list of things to do, but I also just purchased Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. That is one of the advantages of being single I guess, there is nobody pushing you to do that list... and I'm not very self motivated at the moment.
Well it is a little after 7 on my first day of vacation, I think the only logical thing to do is go back to bed for an hour or so. I need to be rested if I am going to play video games all day long.

Ah, the day after turning back the clocks. This is not only the day I can count on the sun going away earlier and making the day feel really short, but I can also count on anytime time is brought up for people to say… “old time or new time?” There is nothing better to hear than that, because you have to think about it for a second or two. I say, I woke up at 8 this morning… then they say, 8am new time or old time? Then I have to think about whether I turned that clock or not. Making me think on a Sunday morning is usually not a good idea. Then later I was at Kwik Trip and got to hear the cashier talking to a customer about the time change and she goes… we get an extra hour of sunlight tonight at least; and I’m thinking only if you turned your clock the wrong fucking way. I didn’t correct her because I don’t really give a shit, which I think should be obvious by now.
I went through my blog comments like I do every other week or so, what the hell is up with all the spam comments telling me how awesome the Microsoft Zune is. Do they even still make the Zune? If so, I was not aware. I don’t know who would spam blogs and shit anyway, like anyone comes here for advice on what to buy.
Today I decided to make a list of shit I want to do around the house. I didn’t realize that I had that many things I wanted to work on around here. I am going to be a busy sunofabitch for the next few weeks, or months depending on how quickly I can work. I should get to that list, but I think I will instead just relax and sit on my ass. Besides, it is almost 10pm, time to go to bed… is that new time or old time?

I Took Two Showers Today
Ah Saturday, it’s the fun day, the first day of your two days off and the day you can truly enjoy. Sunday sucks because you know that Monday is right around the corner, but you can cherish a Saturday. However, this Saturday I spent putting insulation in my basement. I got up and showered in the morning, then washed some clothes and decided that I should do something productive today. I ended up putting insulation into my basement since there was none yet. There is nothing more fun than cutting 8” pieces of insulation and putting them up. By the time four hours was up and I was so damn itchy I had to go upstairs and take another shower. What the hell, two showers in one day? What am I; a coal miner, male prostitute, caramel factory employee? Seriously, what a way to wreck a Saturday, now if I was going on a date or something, then yeah, that might warrant a second shower… not that being covered in nasty, itchy carcinogenic fiberglass isn’t, just a pain in the ass.
Oh joy; tomorrow night we turn the clocks back an hour. I can’t wait for that to happen. Not only do I get one extra hour of sleep on a day I could sleep in if I wanted to, I get to lose my sunlight an extra hour early. Not to mention the bullshit tasks involved as well, changing all of those clocks. Aside from my cell phone and computers, everything else had to be done manually.
